What a lame article lol.

I also dont believe this is even a real interview

All stupid ignorance aside from the other commentators... I really didn't think of it myself. In fact one of them begged for their life before I stabbed them. Seriously I didn't know you didn't have to off all of them.

First playthrough I chucked all my smoke bombs in the room, then whipped out the bow and arrow, filled up the surgeon.

Proceeded to light one up with the flamethrower, but the next.

I let her walk away with what she had seen. So she could tell her friends.

@brody I wanted to do that but it was too late. I hit the melee button.

I only killed the one with the scalpel because he kept threatening me saying that he was going to continue the operation on Ellie. But I thought that if I grabbed her that the doctor would stab me or something so I killed him because I was low on health. XD

I was low on health for the entire hospital scene haha. Man that part was HARD!
banjadude  +   834d ago
My favorite part int he game and I actually stealthed all the guards! The only area where I didn't get detected at all. I did it on hard but I assume survivor will be nearly impossible to completely stealth.

All I know is, tensions where HIGH!
Lovable  +   834d ago
I stealthed my way on this one as well. Got detected when I tried to shoot an arrow to this armored dude...didn't work out as I thought it would be lmao
HammadTheBeast  +   834d ago

I cried at the beginning, when Tess dies, when Sam and Henry die, when Joel gets a hole in his stomach, when Ellie cuts David up, and when Ellie almost dies twice. And the ending, I also cried cause it was over.

Oh and giraffes as well.
The_Con-Sept  +   833d ago
^^^ Random giraffe herd made me think there was some sort of t rex in there. Like that one scene from Jurassic park... Only with giraffe.

I think this is the first shooter to have a giraffe in it.

Toys are us must be proud.

P.S. I was hoping it would sneeze on her.

*********BEWARE: MAJOR SPOILERS!!!!!!**********

I just walked in and shot the two male doctors in the head and knocked the female doctor out (I think, or that one punch might have killed her...)

fourOeightshark  +   834d ago
I killed all 3 of the doctors because they tried to kill Ellie.
Wagz22  +   833d ago
I killed the guy with the scalpel and the surgeon behind him, but I didn't kill the one curled up on the floor. My thinking was the guy with the scapel will kill me and the other guy behind him might retaliate, but the one that was just curled up on the floor wasn't going to fuck with me after what I did to the two others.
wastedcells  +   833d ago
I killed everyone in the hospital. Everyone had to die. Glad Joel finished of the rest in the cut scenes. Joel made me do it. Best.....Game......Ever.

Indeed, I have never played a game that made me feel so good about dooming the rest of the world. Kudos ND!

3 surgeons, one bullet XD
jb1276  +   834d ago
I only killed the one with the scalpel ... if I remember correctly you get as close as you can to him and you grab his hand and jam the scalpel into his pie hole - its pretty awesome >:)

NOBODY touches baby girl!


at 11:05 for the scalpel to the face

I didn't even know all that. I just shot him in the face.
banjadude  +   833d ago
Ha! I'm gonna try that in my Survivor run. Thanks for the info.
schlanz  +   833d ago
Yeah that's how I did it.. I wasn't too low on health and just wanted to see if he actually would attack.. he didn't. Just got right in his face.. nothing happened... so proceeded to grab his scalpel and jam it into his face.

Unlike most people I didn't bother with the others.. no way they were going to try anything after that.
-GametimeUK-  +   834d ago

I walked in and instantly shot the guy in the face. The others started cowering and begging for their lives, but I couldn't give a rats ass and killed them with the shotgun too. Nobody messes with my Ellie! PERIOD!
rpd123  +   833d ago
I watched them plead for a bit then killed them all. I shotgunned two and beat the third to death.

Lol, I killed all of them 😬
rdgneoz3  +   834d ago
Same. Saw Ellie on the table and popped each one in the head.
Williamson  +   834d ago
*Spoilers*.....I shot 2 of them and then burned the 3rd one with a flamethrower, yes I know I'm evil. I Really thought that joel was going to die at that part.

-------------------SPOILERS--- -----------

-------------------SPOILERS-- ------------

I killed all of them, but it wasn't any sort of "KILL KILL KILL" thing, it was simple logic. If I have killed all of these other fools to get to this girl, I'm not about to risk one of them attacking me as I walk away, or making it any easier for the soldiers to find me.

Not to mention the fact that these people were far too hasty about cutting the girl open. I understand that they had been researching this thing for a while, but when you get what appears to be an extremely rare specimen, you do a little more research before you begin such methods.
Aceman18  +   833d ago
i only shot the one with the scalpel, picked her up and bounced lol. great game
BX81  +   834d ago
I gave everyone the business. I saw her on the table and rage mode kicked in!
fenome  +   834d ago
Same here! I didn't even think about it. I popped the one standing there right off the bat like "fuck you, get away from her!"
And then I got the other one, and the last one was cowering on the ground by the counter and I popped that one too with no remorse. We've come too far and been through way too much, I'm not taking any chances.
Kinda crazy how a game can make you feel like that actually..

Spoiler: After I got done killing a lot of ppl in the hospital and then he killed the leader I thought Joel had snapped. But he's just doing what he would've did if she was his real daughter
Also I thought Ellie was dead on the table and I burned them all with my shotgun!

fenome  +   834d ago
She's just too much of a liability, she knew Ellie's mom and knew her since she was a little girl, yet she was still gonna stand to the side and let it go down like that. Too much of a loose end, I totally see why it needed to happen.. Still kinda took me by surprise though
OrangePowerz  +   834d ago

Only killed the doctor on sight and tried to get out of there as quickly as possible.
isarai  +   834d ago

i tried to shoot the doctor in the foot, cause i didn't want to kill such important people(medical professionals) but he still died
PFFT  +   834d ago

I shot the doctors ass.......i mean he did reach out for something therefore i had to pull the trigger. I left the other two lackeys alive.
spok22  +   834d ago

Guess that was supposed to be an emotionally devastating scene then? I shot the first one in the head with my revolver. Then I switched to my flamethrower and proceeded to make the next doctor extra crispy. For the final doctor I shot him in the stomach.. With a shotgun. haha Oops.
plaZeHD  +   834d ago
I shot the first doctor, and meleed the other one, and I was gonna murder the last one, but she called me a monster, so I stopped, and then I just picked up Ellie.
AusRogo  +   834d ago
SPOILERS--------- I just sprayed bullets all in the room, I wasn't taking any chances Hahaha
theDECAY  +   834d ago
I only killed one of them...then grabbed Ellie.
wastedcells  +   833d ago
I wouldn't change a thing about this game or the story. It was perfect because it wasn't.
LoveOfTheGame  +   833d ago
The game would have been better if they ended right after the hospital scene. But adding the little bit after kinda had the game end on a flat note.

Sent one text to my friend saying that ending was terrible with a reply of "I know right?". Could of made the ending much better, but the game was still great.
